    I have family court orders saying I'm to spend time with my daughter from 9 am to 2 pm every second Sunday, my mother has to collect my daughter as I have an avo restricting me. With travel time I only see my girl from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm, because of travel time, 2 hrs.

    Because of this 1 sentence, the applicant's lawyer refuses to explain the orders and the ICL just keeps telling me he can't give free legal advice.

    I've written letters, made phone calls and NO ONE wants to help me.

    How do I interpret this sentence, is travel time included?

    It means the mother has an obligation to make the child available to spend time with you between 9am and 2pm every second Sunday, so the child leaves the mother's care at 9am, and goes back into the mother's care at 2pm. What happens with the child between 9am and 2pm is your responsibility, whether it's time spent at a park, having lunch or travelling between households.
